888Live Local Heads Back to London at Aspers Casino Westfield

The first half of the smash hit 888Live Local season draws to a close next week with a stop at an Aspers casino in the UK for the third time this year.

This time the destination is Aspers Westfield Stratford City in London, the UK's first super casino.

With its particularly long poker tradition Britain is naturally one of the favorite countries on the 888Live tour and events there tend to be more popular than anywhere else.

In January, when the Aspers Casino in London was first visited by 888Live Local, more than 600 players showed up. The cap of 500 players had to be lifted to accommodate everybody.

That meant that the original prize pool of £50,000 guaranteed was more than doubled and £120,000 was awarded to 63 players.

Local hero Terry Jordon took home the biggest prize of £23,700.

In late March 888Live went back to Britain and visited another Aspers Casino branch, this time in Milton Keynes.

The event turned out to be a smaller one but winner Mohamed Muse still received £6,250 for his £220 investment.

Now the series returns to Westfield, London, and it’s going to be another big one.

John Scanlon, Head of Poker at Aspers Westfield, says 888Live Local is “our most popular tournament of the year." He's looking forward to the next edition:

"Our partnership with 888poker, and our drive and commitment to provide players with the best product possible, meant it was an easy decision for Aspers to re-host this new series of UK events."

If you want to play a poker tournament with a great structure and an affordable buy-in this one will start on Friday, May 29 with the final table playing out on Sunday night.

If you want to spare your money for something else go to the 888poker lobby and look for the satellites. They are running 24/7 and start as low as 1 cent buy-in.

More upcoming stops in the 888Live local series will be Tallinn, Marbella, Newcastle, Opatija, Croatia, and Budva, Montenegro.

Qualify for the BOM and the WSOP

With the help of 888poker qualifiers you can also make your way to big events like the Battle of Malta and the World Series of Poker.

Satellites for 2015 Battle of Malta 24/7.

The Battle of Malta is Europe’s Best Low Buy-In Tournament and the largest standalone tournament anywhere on the continent.

It will be played early in November, has a €550 buy-in and will likely surpass the unlikely number of 2,000 players this year.

The World Series of Poker is entering its 46th year and the main event is by far the most fascinating, riveting poker event in the world.
